    For me it had to be 100% grain free. I just mention this because your posts (original poster) sort of imply you are just trying to be gluten free? I went gluten free for two years and it helped, but not enough. Going 100% grain free (including the pseudo grains like quinoa) are what cleared it up.
    I'm still following this thread, and yes - this is still the situation exactly with my daughter. No beans/100% no grains = healthy bowels. I'm glad you found this answer and it is working for you.

      I'm sure you know a lot of good information, and have probably helped a lot of people. But the way you respond in this forum makes you look like a pompous know-it-all, and several of the things you've stated as fact are unproven theories.
      Do you even have a clue what a theory is?

      And as far as your other comment I am just going to write it off as another of your insults that you keep responding to me with since you have nothing else in the way of evidence to present. But in short I am getting really fed up with people like you constantly bashing me because I have actually taken the time to research these topics in depth for decades. A large part of what I do involves doing a massive amount of medical research on a regular basis. That is how come I have known about the viral link to MS and the role of the adrenals and low affinity antibodies for over 20 years. All it takes is a little research to verify the information. So don't keep insulting me in each of your responses to me just because you are too lazy to take the few minutes it takes to verify what I stated.

      Read the end of post #57:

      http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread65229-6.html

      That is one possibility. Without more details as to exactly what you ate or what "lifestyle changes" you made reference to it is impossible to say for sure what actually helped. Maybe you gave up caffeine or nicotine. Maybe you reduced your stress levels. Maybe you started eating foods higher in vitamin C and pantothenic acid supporting the adrenals. Maybe you got off the adrenal atrophying or immune suppressing drugs the doctors love to prescribe for MS. I am not a mind reader so don't ask me to guess how you managed to deal with your MS without any details about what changes you made.

      Why is it that all the people too lazy to research the claims that I make to verify the information always use this same insult? Do you all follow the same Insult Those Who Post What You Do Not Understand Playbook?

        Some people do have sensitivities to grains. Just like some people have sensitivities to milk, or certain meats, etc. This does not mean these foods are a problem for everyone. I have consumed soy all my life. I eat grains all the time. I love Mexican food, especially beans. I also eat a variety of fibrous foods, seeds, meats, etc. And I have been extremely healthy nearly my entire life. I was allergic to mother's milk and cow's milk as a baby, which is why I was given soy milk as a baby. I outgrew my allergies at the age of 5 and have never had any real health problems since. Just the occasional cold or whatever every few years. Again, just because some people have problems with some foods this does not make them bad for everyone.

          If multiple people are saying that you sound like a know-it-all who becomes antagonistic when other people present alternate information that has personally helped them, that should be a clue...

          I'm going to figure out how to block you so I don't have to waste time arguing with someone who thinks he knows all the answers in the world for everyone. I already get to argue with someone like that: my dad. One person like that is enough for me

          ...update: Just put someone on the ignore list - wish I could put my dad on this sometimes!

            Its really simple. If you see my name at the top of a post then don't read it or respond to it. Oops, there I go again explaining simple concepts to you. I guess this means you will be responding with even more insults.

              Ok, good for you. But the thread is talking about digestive problems. I was one of those people with digestive issues throughout my adult life and cutting grains fixed that, so I gave that suggestion. And many of us don't know if we have problems with a food until we cut it out of our diets (since the testing is not exact - and many doctors won't even test but will tell you it's "stress" or give you a pill) so I was giving it as a suggestion. I think it's worth trying for someone who has digestive issues they can't seem to fix.

                I think you missed the point. Even if someone has digestive issues this does not automatically make these foods bad for them. Again, everyone is different. Just like everyone cannot eat the same foods, what worked for you will not work for everyone else.

                So it is not the food that is the problem, it is whether or not that particular individual has some type of sensitivity to that particular food.

                  Oops, simple concepts; you order, because of the expertise that you have told all of us about that you have - all posters here must bow, to you, the king.

                    Yeah, ShannonCC, how dare you suggest something that helped you personally! Next time, remember to run your responses by the king before posting! Maybe it can save him from having to always explain these simple concepts to us!

                      I know what works for me won't work for everyone else. Are you saying we shouldn't give suggestions? What's the point of the forum then?

                      And yes, some people have a sensitivity, do you have a cure for that sensitivity? If you do, please market it. Until then, cutting the food out of the diet is the easiest, cheapest, quickest way to fix things and that's what I'm suggesting. Not ordering, not saying everyone should do it, but saying it worked for me and I think it's worth a try.

                        LOL! Yeah, I think I'm walking away (and maybe hitting the "hide" button )

                          FYI,

                          I just popped in as a public service. Y'all are being aggravated by a professional TROLL that was thrown out of 2 discussion groups, and he destroyed the Iodine Group here at MDA. Put JamesS on "Ignore" or he will succeed in destroying this thread, too.

                          He is also creating fights & dissent on on the other threads he is visiting. He is not a "King," he is just a slick Professional TROLL.

                          Grizz

                            There are people out there that will tell you that cocaine helped them. So I guess by your reasoning cocaine must also be great for everyone.

                            No wonder you keep responding with insults. You clearly have nothing substantial to respond with. Funny though how you and you new buddy keep referring to me as the king while both of you keep trying to control what can and cannot be said here just like rulers. So which of you are the true king and which is the queen?

                              No, I never said or implied that. This is just one of those excuses people try to use when they have nothing substantial with so they try to find some way to discredit the person rather than addressing the actual topic.

                              Tell me. You are the one that seems to think that only people that agree with you should have a voice here.

                              I don't need to market it, I already posted several times tips on how to get rid of sensitivities. But some people are so eager to fight that they only read enough to find something to attack on rather than read the answers already given

                              So you fixed your problem? Or did you just mask the symptoms? If you fixed the problem then you should be able to eat those foods without a reaction. So again, did you actually fix the problem or just mask it?

                                Yes, you keep saying that but you keep coming back every chance you get not to present evidence, but rather to attack me every chance you get. So I have no doubt you will keep replying to my posts rather than ignore them. You clearly are a very unhappy person who feels that if you are unhappy that others should be as well. As the saying goes "misery loves company". This is why you keep responding with insults instead of contributing to the discussion.
